Explore the glory and tragedy of the Ttitanic in a fascinating book that traces the events leading up to her fateful end.
On April 14, 1912, the largest and finest ocean liner of the age struck an iceberg and sank to the icy depths. Here, in clear, compelling prose illustrated with evocative scenes, extensive diagrams, and historical photos, is the story of the Titanic’s rise and fall — from details on her state-of-the-art design and widely varying accommodations to a timeline showing how structural and human failure contributed to her demise.
